Adjusting to New Realities

My friend Jan Heine wrote some very wise words over on his blog:

Here in Eugene, Christine & I spent this past weekend hunkered down at home with our cat, Inkling. As of today, my place of work (Bike Friday) is still in operation and the main business impact of COVID-19 has been on the supply side of the business (we have had various delays and availability issues around getting parts), but with all the travel restrictions and economic shocks (not to mention the serious medical issues), I am certain the demand side is going to drop precipitously. Our main business is travel bikes and there will be a lot less travel happening this year.

Various businesses in your town having to cope with difficult circumstances. This article has some good advice on ways you can help:

Stay safe, friends and do what you can to help each other through this.
